Audio Post Production
I'm Mike McKyes, the founder and owner of The Grove Productions, a graduate of the Music Industry Arts program with over seventeen years experience of full time professional employment in the music industry as a producer, signed recording artist and writer. My goal is to establish a comfortable atmosphere and open communication with clients to help cultivate and capture the best and most honest performance, which I deeply believe is key to making the best possible music for an audience to believe and identify with. I have designed a company that can be flexible in price and is able to accommodate the needs of artists and clients utilizing my experiences and current technology, top quality studios, on site isolation recording booth with 16 channels I/O for overdubs/editing/mixing, high end recording gear and on site lodging steps away from beautiful Lake Huron for out of town and travelling clients!
ABOUT THE STUDIO
Iíve always been a fan of the older, warm analog sounds and the ease and reliability of digital editing so I created a hybrid of the two! My philosophy is to record with lush, rich analog sounds through good microphones and preamps, then sum and mix all the tracks through an analog Neve preamp/SSL bus compressor path via the Roll Music Folcrom summing box. Now youíve also got the ability to track through a vintage Teac 80-8 tape machine, either while recording or afterward during post-production.
TOP QUALITY RECORDINGS
You will have access to some of the best facilities, recording and mixing equipment available on the market today and be provided with competetive prices and the best service from the beginning of pre production to a finished, mastered recording ready for pressing! If I don't have it, we'll get it. Contact for rates.
FOR THE BUDGET MINDED/DEMO PROJECTS
There's no general rule for how much you can spend on a recording project, sometimes you may want a more cost effective demo to shop for investors or a CD to sell from the stage and have a certain budget in mind. No problem! We can work out something that will sound good enough to be proud of and use as a vehicle to save up for the next, bigger project! Contact for rates.
